YA Awards News
Here’s some YA award news that’s come my way over the last week or so:
- The Canadian Children’s Book Centre has announced the finalists for its 2010 awards.
- Fire by Kristin Cashore has been named the winner of the 2010 Amelia Elizabeth Walden Book Award for YA Fiction. Finalists included Marcelo in the Real World, The Monstrumologist, North of Beautiful, and The Sweetheart of Prosper County.
- Australia’s 2010 Prime Minister’s Literary Awards shortlist for the YA Category was announced recently. There’s a ton of great YA coming out of Australia these days. Why not give some of these books a try?
